Summit County woman drowns in Basin-area pool
A 62-year-old woman died Tuesday after being found unconscious in the Aquatic Center pool at Ecker Hill Middle School.
Deputy Brian Debotelho said the office of the medical examiner is investigating the cause of death. However, it is not considered suspicious.
The Park City Fire District responded to a call about a possible drowning at around 10:30 a.m., according to Steve Zwirn, Fire District battalion chief. Aquatic Center staff performed CPR until medical personnel arrived.
The woman, a Summit County resident, was transported to the Park City Medical Center in critical condition. She was later pronounced deceased.
According to a Park City School District press release, the school district offered counseling services to students and staff at Ecker Hill Middle School.
Meredith Reed was elected to a two-year term as chair of the Summit County Democratic Party and said she sees an opportunity to ride the so-called blue wave that saw a Democratic surge nationally and within the state.
